Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll|
Ripe, focused flavors of cherry, boysenberry, and blackcurrant are complemented by soft notes of cedar, bay leaf, and a savory earthiness. On the palate, this wine has a fruit-driven entry balanced with firm tannins that give way to a lush, lingering finish. This wine shines with red meats and copious amounts of thyme and black pepper. Chef Chris Kennedy recommends using them to marinate a filet of beef, in a hearty beef stew, or to finish a red wine sauce. Not a big red meat eater? One of his other favorite go-to dishes for this wine is ahi tuna crusted in black pepper.
This classic, elegant wine is food friendly and demure in red fruit and dried herb. Sinewy layers of integrated tannin and oak give it a cohesive feel on the lengthy, graceful palate.
